My boyfriend has had poison ivy for about 4 or 5 days now, the rash is on the bottom of his penis belly. Is it okay to have sex still?

No: Poison ivy on the penis is unusual. Only skin that touches a poison ivy plant or something contaminated with the plant oil would cause this. I suggest sending your boyfriend to the doctor for a checkup. In the meantime, wait on sex until his doctor says he does not have anything contagious. ...Read more

I had sex with my boyfriend a few times while he had poison ivy (or sumac/oak) on his penis/genitals. Will this hurt me internally?

Refrain Until Cured: Developing a rash from any of the plants you listed on the penis/scrotum should be treated as a serious complication. However, assuming he washed before you had intercourse for the first time, there shouldn't be any concern on your part. He likely will need treatment and I would suggest (for his sake) refraining from any more intercourse until the blisters are gone. ...Read more

Contact dermatitis: Poison ivy can get on your penis if you touch a plant and then your privates. If you did that, about 2-3 days later, it would do exactly what you describe, and the itching normally lasts about 3 weeks. The itching is normally quite severe, so it would be best if you saw your doctor and got prescription medication and made sure the diagnosis is correct. Rashes have to be seen to be diagnosed. ...Read more

But once the oil has been washed off the body, the resulting rash or blisters do not contain any oil and are not contagious. Time heals. ...Read more

It would be too early to know if she was pregnant if it just occurred. ...Read more
